“Fantastic country escape with top quality food and rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at the Lazy Toad before but never had the pleasure of staying. As a birthday treat my mother paid for us to have the Bed Breakfast & Evening meal package at the pub.

The rooms were so tastefully decorated and very well equipped . Very 'country chic' and had everything you could hope for - even fresh milk for your tea!

The meal in the evening was amazing as always and the service and staff excellent. I like the fact they take your Christian names when you arrive and then treat you like old friends throughout your stay. Breakfast was lovely too and as with the evening meal local produce was used which is always comforting.

The rate for the package was great and a fab treat even though we only live 14 miles away!

I would recommend this place to everyone. They have 3 rooms to choose from. We had Mr Toads room and loved it. A real treat.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We stayed on a wet Saturday in November and the pub was busy but the food was amazing, the service was attentive and lovely and we stayed in Moley's Room. Moley's does not have a bath but it has a good shower and the kingsize bed was heavenly too.

The food is the highlight of The Lazy Toad, the attention to detail and the sublety of the cooking is astonishing and the use of local produce comes from the heart, it is not just greenwash (which always grates for me).

I would say 'If you love somebody take them to the Lazy Toad!' ......

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem nice

My friend and I were meeting up after 40 years and we stayed at the Lazy Toad. We had the most marvellous time. The welcome was great, the food and the rooms couldn't have been better. It was really convenient to Exeter and the University and I plan to come back with my husband.
